Q: Is your food supply chain safe and secure?
A: At Bar-S Foods, food safety is a top priority. Our food processing plants are among the most secure production facilities in the nation and utilize the most sophisticated food safety systems available. Bar-S Foods’ policies and procedures for quality and safety meet and or exceed all federal, state, and local requirements. Inspection personnel from these regulatory agencies monitor compliance on a regular basis. We continually review security procedures at all of our manufacturing facilities and improve our systems as new technology becomes available. In addition, our emergency preparedness plans allow us to quickly respond to issues, whether real or threatened, to protect our employees, products and consumers.
Q: Are food additives safe?
A: All additives used by Bar-S Foods have been approved for general use by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration. The USDA (United States Department of Agriculture) determines if the additives are safe and suitable for meat and poultry products. Bar-S Foods follows the package label requirements set by the USDA. Not all consumers react the same way to food ingredients. People who have allergies or reactions from certain ingredients are advised to visit the FDA website for more detailed information.
Q: Are your products tested?
A: Yes, all of our products are continually tested to ensure quality, safety, and taste.
Q: Do we have a constant temperature being monitored from the cooking point until packaging?
A: We monitor room temperature and product temperature because cooking and chilling are monitored as Critical Control Points.
